The Word Aware 2: Early Years course introduces Early Years practitioners to the Word Aware approach. It is based on the same ideas as the original book, but focuses on the crucial early developing language.
Many children start school with poor vocabulary, so this course gives schools, nurseries and Early Years settings the practical ideas to make a difference.
The aims of the Word Aware Early Years course are:
- Build on good practice
- Explore vocabulary development in Early Years
- Learn a structured approach to teaching vocabulary in Early Years settings
- Be inspired to develop children’s vocabulary
Training can also be commissioned by schools or departments. The cost for a whole day’s training is currently £1100 plus expenses. Handouts and PowerPoint are emailed for hosts to print. Participants will also need copies of the book on and after the course.
